I'd like to dedicate this next number to a long-time fan from Wichita...
Don't forget to tell the sponsors that your cost will include the rental of several hundred feet of yellow jackets...
I am sure there are plenty available in Corpus Christy, TX.
On the other hand, owning a hundred-hundred fifty feet of Checkers Guard Dogs has been pretty nice the past three years-- not only do I get to use them for my events ("that's ten bucks each for these, thank you very much"), but I can rent them to other companies. Since I splurged and had my logo impressioned on the lid, it's cool renting them to other sound companies, who are advertising my
company for me, at their event.
Since they rent for so little, that's such a small amount that big events don't even notice the cost. And for a smaller event, if I can give them 60' of ramps for free and it gets me the gig- well, that's a rental item I am OK not always charging for. Makes the customer feel good.
